NAME
iok- Indic Onscreen Keyboard SYNOPSIS
iok [-a] [-h] [-d 1] [-n LANGCODE] DESCRIPTION
Indic Onscreen Keyboard currently shows Inscript and Inscript2 keymaps for 22 official Indian languages. The languages are Assamese, Bengali, Bodo, Dogri, Gujarati, Hindi, Kannada, Kokani, Maithili, Malayalam, Manipuri, Marathi, Nepali, Oriya, Punjabi, Sanskrit, Santali, Sindhi, Tamil, Telugu. The iok application runs in default and advanced mode. In default mode, iok starts by loading Inscript2 keymap of the current locale. If keymap is not installed or available then iok shows keymap list in the default mode. User can then select any keymap from keymap list if he want to write using it. In the advanced mode, iok allows one to open non-supported keymaps. If keymap can be parsed by iok then it will be showed in iok UI otherwise it will show error message that iok can't load this keymap. Advanced mode also allows one to create custom keymap by either swap- ping or re-assigning character mappings in the existing loaded keymap in iok. Another feature iok supports is Drag and Drop. This will allow user to swap character mappings using mouse. The keymap list shows Inscript and Inscript2 keymaps from location /usr/share/m17n and ~/.m17n.d path. To start iok in normal mode from console, use following command iok To start iok in advanced mode from console, use following command iok -a To start iok in any supported Inscript2 keymap (say in Marathi) use following command iok -n mr As Inscript2 keymap naming also uses language script code for some languages, command to open those keymaps is like this iok -n pa-guru where pa is a isocode name for the Punjabi language and guru is a language script code name in which keymap is written. To use Drag and Drop feature of iok, start iok from console as iok -d 1 The Draft version of Inscript2 keymaps are available at https://fedorahosted.org/inscript2/ This project is available at http://fedorahosted.org/iok/ or http://iok.sourceforge.net OPTIONS
-a It shows the menus and combo box in iok UI -h It show the help -d 1 This will enable Drag and Drop feature only for the single iok invocation. Otherwise iok has disabled Drag and Drop by default. -n LANGCODE In the place of LANGCODE,you need to specify a particular language code. Shows iok UI for that particular language. This will also requires language script code. e.g. for Bodo, Dogri, Kokani, Nepali, Sindhi use its langcode and "-deva" as a language script code. To start iok using Kokani keymap, run "iok -n kok-deva" AUTHOR

NAME
xkbdfltmap - Determine default X keymap for locale and keyboard SYNOPSIS
xkbdfltmap [options] OPTIONS
lang specifies a string to be used instead of the console language. This option is useful for locales that cannot be specified in the con- sole. This option is only used if XKB is active in the server. kbd specifies a string to be used instead of the console keyboard. This option is useful for keyboard types that cannot be uniquely identified by the kernel. For example, the kernal identifies the Microsoft Natural Keyboard as a PCXAL. If XKB is not active in the server, file specifies the xmodmap command. The default is /usr/bin/X11/xmodmap. If XKB is not active in the server, file specifies the file containing the information necessary to determine what xmodmap keymap to use based upon the console language and keyboard type. The default is /usr/lib/X11/xdm/Xkeymaps. If XKB is active in the server, file speci- fies the XKB keyboard compiler. The default is /usr/bin/X11/xkbcomp. If XKB is active in the server, path specifies the top-level direc- tory that contains the XKB keymaps. The default is /usr/lib/X11/xkb. If XKB is active in the server, file specifies the file containing the information necessary to determine what XKB keymap to use based upon the console language and keyboard type. The default is /usr/lib/X11/keymaps.dir. Specifies whether execute the necessary command to download the keymap to the server after determining the default, or whether to just print out the necessary command. Specify -exec to download the keymap. Specify -noexec to just print out the necessary command. The default is -noexec. If the -noexec command is specified, and XKB is active in the server, the -file option instructs xkbdfltmap to print out just the XKB keymap file that contains the keymap. A keymap will not be downloaded to the server if -file is used. If the -noexec command is specified, and XKB is active in the server, the -map option instructs xkbdfltmap to print out just the XKB keymap name. A keymap will not be downloaded to the server if -map is used. DESCRIPTION
The xkbdfltmap command queries the system console for the language and keyboard settings. Then, based upon whether the XKB server exten- sion is active in the server, it will optionally download an xmodmap file from /usr/lib/X11/keymaps or an XKB keymap file from /usr/lib/X11/xkb to the server.
